Travelling in the Middle East

The Middle East is a vast area that encompasses Egypt in North Africa, Pakistan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, Israel, Afghanistan, Turkey and Syria. It is, and has been for centuries, the centre for world affairs and the seat of both Christianity and Islam. Indeed it is the home of the world's oldest civilisations. As such it is diverse and fascinating area, with plenty to see and do and a huge variety of cultures to understand and encounter. From the pyramids of ancient Egypt to the stunning modern opulence of Dubai's grandest structures, you can see the very newest and the most ancient here.

Know before you go

Of course, with so much culture and so many religions, sub-cultures and countries, there is always going to be conflict, some of it on a truly global scale. In recent times Egypt has been off limits, along with Syria, Lebannon and of course, Afganistan, Iraq and Kuwait.

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, which provides us with regular detailed updates of the situation in each country, also gives travel advice for anyone looking to travel to the Middle East. Country by country their ‘know before you go' website lists trouble spots and no go areas for tourists. When choosing a destination it is vital to check with the FCDO as our travel insurance policies are not valid in countries where the FCDO has advised against all travel.

A travel insurance policy that won't hold you back

Depending on the way you like to travel you can choose the level of cover you go for with any World First travel insurance policy. So if you like the reassurance of £10 million emergency medical expenses and optional gadget cover – as well as cancellation, loss of baggage, documents and money – then our Exclusive policy will see you through. And, of course, all our policies give you access to 24/7 emergency assistance.

We also include over 75 sports and activities free. So you can go snorkelling, golfing and hot air ballooning and you'll automatically be covered. But if you want to add more, just ask. Almost anything is possible!
